It was a post that was several months in the making. I was having it on my to-do list for months, but was finally able to finish and publish it.

I am not talking about a post here, but at my Blog at, which is related to internet and affiliate marketing. The blog post I did is titled “User Generated Advertising Web 2.0 Style” and is about leveraging communities like for your business.

deviantART is a great place for businesses who want to do “different” advertising, 100% Web 2.0 style. I suggested the use of dA design contests to have artists create designs for any kind of thing you can come up with. I explained the benefits like this:

You engage people, inspire creativity and get authentic designs, which are honest and pure. It could be a web 2.0 style advertising campaign, very viral (speaking of buzz marketing).

It’s a pretty long post, but I recommend to read it, if you are interested in this sort of things.

I did a contest at deviantART myself last year. It was not a design contest, but it was a contest to promote my Text art site a little bit. I blogged about it too. I hope this provides some inspiration. Just think outside the box from time to time and try out new things. This is true no matter what you are doing.
